Every Father needs to issue his offspring with some stern words occasionally.
As the Father of Fantasy Sport in this beautiful nation, and as the leader of our proud community there are times when I need to take all of you aside for some home truths. This is one of those times.
Don’t get all worked up. There will be no fire and brimstone here today. Just let me draw you all close to my bosom for a few words.

I’m concerned about how many of you are approaching your ruck divisions. I’m seeing a trend which has me worried. Didn’t bloody sleep last night. You see – if you stuff your ruck division.. you can put a line through the 2016 season. It’s that simple.
I’m not as concerned about most of your R1 selections. I’m more worried about your R2’s. It’s always been my opinion that BOTH big bastards you slot into BOTH of your on field ruck slots need to be tried and tested. Clear #1 primary rucks at their respective teams. Durable. Consistent. Not necessarily a standout point scoring monolith. Just reliable and consistent.
Because let me tell you. A dodgy speculative R2 selection is a one way ticket to a season of disaster. Every trade you burn trying to fix a stuffed ruck division is a trade that could otherwise have been used to get your team to full premium before your competitors.
I’m not asking you not to look for value my beautiful community. I’m asking you to select 2 rucks who you are comfortable sitting there for the whole season.
Does Lobbe fit the bill here? Probably does. But I pray to the Fantasy Gods that you have him penned in at R2.
I’ll be by my computer here watching this poll unfold. You can select 2 of these mid pricers in the poll. For the sake of your fantasy season.. I hope you select 1. If you’re selecting 2 I hope you’re looking at your second on the bench for depth.
I love you all.
